The medical assistant needs to attend training on their chairside manner. They were very abrasive and not friendly. Several times shutting me down with my communication to clarify my med changes. After the doctor left they forcefully handed me my after visit saying "you can go. Here is your SIX PAGE after visit" she never showed me the way out or thank me or ask if I had any questions. She didn't offer to help me make a follow up appointment or even hand off to the front desk. When u got in the car and reviewed my after visit it was wrong. It wasn't what we discussed and I didn't feel comfortable to go back.

In all my years of seeing clinicians for a variety of reasons I'd rank Dr. Neville in the top 10%. This includes doctors at the Cleveland Clinic, in Chicago area and elsewhere in the Midwest and the Portland-Vancouver area. When we first moved to the greater Portland area I was concerned about finding an excellent internist and a neurologist and I'm pleased to say I found both among the Legacy Salmon Creek providers.

I waited 11 mo to get in to see this provider. Multiple phone calls were made to ask about my status, during which I was told I would get a call. I never did and I did not know my referral could, and did expire. I had to get another referral and when I called in to ask about it was told it was not worded correctly. Could someone not contact my referring doctors office with this concern? Is It up to the patient to correct this? I did a lot of work as a patient, making calls and contacting my referring doctor multiple times. Very frustrating and without the support of my wife I could not do this. With all of that being said, I could not be more pleased with the care I received. I almost want to say it was worth the wait, but I think the wait was excessive and with better communication with the client perhaps this could be avoided in the future.

Dr Neville listened to me and provided good care. I was satisfied, and thought that he was a great guy.

Absolutely love the provider, but his office staff is severely lacking in work ethic and compassion. If it wasn't such a hassle to get into any neurology office and have to go through all the hoops again to get treatment, I would. NOT Because of the doctor but because of the office staff. Often times calls made were answered by unhelpful or rude staff. There are a handful that were very nice and understanding. The referrals team is a joke. They know or should know what insurance needs to approval a referral. They shouldn't take 5 months and several calls and emails from the patient and insurance company to get a referral approved. This was medical care that has severely affected my life and job and the lack of empathy, understanding, or act of doing their job was astonishing at times. I would not recommend this provider solely due to his referral team. No one should have to go through that much effort to receive help.

The team at this office is always courteous, caring, and helpful. They crate an environment where you're comfortable being honest and truly feel like they are here to help you more than anything. The overall atmosphere has helped me become more accepting of my condition and honest about my health with both myself and healthcare team. They're great at working with you to find solutions to your ailments

Receptionist needs to work on her communication skills. I told her I had checked in online and paid my co pay there. She asked all the Covid questions (which I expected), but then asked if she could change the card on file. I told her no, I had paid online. She asked the question the same exact way three times before explaining that when you pay online the system doesn't actually charge your card; it just holds it for authorization. Once she said that, then I said it was fine. All I could think was how hard this would be for elderly people to understand. She needs to be trained better.

This was our first visit to establish with Dr. Neville. I found him informed of [name removed] case/records, congenial and easy to talk with. I was happy to hear he wants to hear from his patients if there is a concern. I look forward to him being [name removed] neurologist.

  Feb 2, 2023
Medical assistant a little rude.I waited almost an hour before my time with the doctor began. At first I waited 45 minutes in the procedure room. Then after that long, they arrived and explained to them that it might be better if I go to the bathroom real quick. So I went real quick and when I came back they were gone and I waited 15 more minutes for them to come back.I could have used more advice on actions I could take for my medical issue. Only really told what was wrong.

My mother and I were very impressed with Dr. Neville and will definitely recommend him if anyone is looking for a neurologist. He took his time, showed me that he cares about his patients, and encourages me to be proactive in my health. It has been a difficult year with the migraines and I see some hope :)

The nurse who went over my records before the doctor came in was quite unpleasant like she didn't want to be there and was frustrated with having to update medications The doctor was fantastic and I hope I don't have to see the nurse again with her bad attitude

I have poly neuropathy and am currently bedridden due to it. I came to Dr. Neville for help. He spent 20 minutes with me then made some recommendations based on this visit plus reading my file.I should mention that I have severe allergic reactions to medications including going into anaphylaxis shock several times and dying once, my heart had to be paddled back to life. I spent days in a coma as a result of an allergic reaction to taking a medication. Not only was he unaware of this, he seemed uninterested when I tried to tell him about this. There was a lot of information that Dr. Neville was missing yet he was happy to make recommendations about my health. I could go on about how bad this visit was but Instead I'll say that you're getting a negative review about a new doctor. This should be alarming to you. I'm more than happy to tell you more about the visit if you call. I have more to say but typing is challenging for me.

  Sep 15, 2022
This doctor listed and seemed to understand my problem. He was thorough and gave me good information about my problem and good suggestions for improvement.

Dr. Neville was very kind, listened, spent adequate time and genuinely wanted to create a plan for healing. Very impressed as he was a second opinion after already seeing a neurologist.
